Palm previews Enyo platform for tablets at Dev Day

HP and Palm's Joe Hayashi at the Palm Developer Day this Saturday provided some of the first details of the developer platform that will support a slew of new webOS devices next year. The Enyo framework will replace Mojo and is built to support different designs beyond the mix of touchscreen and physical keyboard, such as full-touch phones and tablets like the PalmPad. The JavaScript code underneath should run faster and will be more modular to help fix bugs and add new features sooner than before.

The design is also built to work more closely with Ares, Palm's web-based development tool.

A version of Enyo for those in the Early Access program will be available near the start of 2011 and is expected to include the devices themselves in or near the same timeframe. Among those could be Mansion, a large smartphone or small tablet; the Roadrunner HD, a smartphone with a 640x960 display much like that on the iPhone 4; and a slew of currently unknown devices, such as the Broadway, Mantaray, Stingray and Windsor.

    I like my Palm Pre Plus. I am sure there are a lot better and faster out there. But it has the friendliness of the original Macintosh. HP makes fairly good stuff. With any luck, this expensive experiment might pan out for them. I really would like to see a kick-a** Palm OS tablet. I hope it is not all just vaporware.
